A giant of musical theatre has given his backing to an ambitious new show taking shape in Wigan on the life and work of George Orwell. Sir Tim Rice, who has provided the words for a host of iconic musicals, has sent a message of support for Beyond Wigan Pier which is being put together by Ince musician Alan Gregory and his team. Sir Tim Rice The legendary lyricist received a copy of the show’s love duet Look at Me from Alan and was quick to send praise for it back to Wigan. The endorsement has put a spring in the step of everyone preparing for this spring’s premiere concert performance as Sir Tim’s career work includes the lyrics to Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, The Lion King and Chess.
